Using Shear

Shearing refers to slanting an object either horizontally or vertically. You accomplish this by using the Shear tool and dragging the control handles.

To shear an object in the Canvas:

1.
Choose the Shear mode by selecting it from the pop-up menu in the Toolbar, by pressing the Tab key until it appears, or by Control-clicking the object in the Canvas and selecting Shear from the drop-down menu.

2.
Click and drag one of the object’s control handles (Figure 4.17).

Use the top and bottom handles to shear horizontally and the side handles to shear vertically.
